GAINESVILLE IS FAMOUS: The “Brazilian Butt Lift Lady” went national on Breitbart News

Alachua County Jail

Wow, allowing this debacle to happen on their watch must have given Gainesville city officials tons of credibility with local voters. NOT. Can anybody say  “biomass contract negotiations?”  How about  “proposal to narrow Main Street for three-quarters of a mile from Depot Avenue south to 16th Avenue?

From Katherine Rodriguez at Breitbart.com:

A woman who worked for the city of Gainesville, Florida, allegedly stole more than $93,000 in city funds and used the money to pay for a Brazilian butt lift as well as other purchases, according to a report.

An auditor’s report released Wednesday showed that Natwaina Clark, 33, stole $93,000 in public funds and used $8,500 of the stolen funds toward a Brazilian butt lift, the Gainesville Sun reported.

The report also found that Clark, a former city staff specialist, used her credit card issued by the city 136 times for $61,000 in unauthorized charges, charged her supervisors’ credit cards 36 times for $31,000, and charged $500 to a coworker’s card that she used five times.

Countryside Baptist Church
10926 NW 39th Avenue  Gainesville, FL 32606

Now for the interesting stuff. Many of you may have heard that for some reason this is one of the town halls that the left community organizers have decided to target. Actually it is quite an honor if you think about it. The powers that be on the left have actually stated that they must organize and mobilize as the Tea Party groups had done in order to regain the control that they so desire. After all, once you pretty much have everything that you could want over the last eight years, it is hard to give up. So much for the Democracy that they all profess to love. So the group called INDIVISIBLE has pulled out all the plugs to get individuals to show up at this town hall and protest against Congressman Yoho and President Trump. So why do we say “protest”?

Secondly, an ad about getting paid to protest- (A complete copy was not forwarded to us but here is what we received)

The Indivisible Gainesville group does in fact have a good page for individuals to submit questions-

 

They are very well organized but does make you wonder where were they during President Obama’s term? So why did you get this email?

Well, to be honest, it is a great opportunity to come out and support one of the few Congressmen who in fact has changed the course of our history for the better. Can you say “nice knowing you John Boehner.”

Not only will the local press be there but so will CSPAN. So come on out, support your Congressman and see exactly how his opponents hope to convince him to ignore those who did vote for him.

Parent Activists React to Another Common Core Redo: ‘Kill It and Be Done with It’

Excerpts from the below article:

…As one superintendent tweeted, “Standards don’t teach children, teachers do.”

…There is no official information about who selected the individuals to write the Common Core standards. None of the writers of the math and English Language Arts standards have ever taught math, English, or reading at the K-12 level.

 

The article:

By Dr. Susan Berry

New York State parent activists who have been battling the Common Core standards say the announcement that the state’s education department will be making changes to its Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) amounts to “only words.”

The state’s education commissioner, MaryEllen Elia, says two committees, composed of parents and educators, have recommended changing 60 percent of the English Language Arts (ELA) standards and 55 percent of the math standards, reports the Associated Press.

However, Yvonne Gasperino and Glen Dalgleish, co-founders of Stop Common Core in New York State, tell Breitbart News the education department is simply drawing out the death of the highly unpopular Common Core.

“For the love of God, kill the rabid fox and put it out of its misery,” Gasperino and Dalgleish say. “Revive the ‘lost standards’ and bring them back to the table or revert to pre-Common Core days.”

Noting the failure of Common Core throughout the country, the activists – who have been fighting the federally incentivized program since 2009 – say New York’s educators are “more than capable of coming up with their own child-centered, age-appropriate standards that educate all children.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

V.I.P. Bruce Nelson – Call to Action

Last Saturday our dear and dependable County watchdog, Bruce Nelson suffered four strokes.  He is a fighter and is in stable condition and has been released from the hospital.  Bruce is already back on the battle field giving direction.  This coming Tuesday, Sept. 1st at 10 am the County will be reviewing the Sheriff’s budget on the second floor of the County Administration Building.

Bruce has always been there for us.  I cannot think of any better medicine for Bruce than to have us filling the county auditorium in support of Law Enforcement.

Thank you,

Debbie Martinez

Great GTP Meeting Scheduled

Excited to announce that we have John Hallman with Liberty First Network as a speaker for our Saturday June 27th meeting. Liberty First is one of the only, if not the only lobbying firm in Tallahassee that advocates for true Liberty and smaller government. A true Grassroots supporter.

John Hallman is an active, longtime voice in all levels of Florida politics and is a veteran of advocating issues of liberty in the Florida legislature. John also has served as the State Director for FreedomWorks; the pro-free market organization as well as Deputy Director of Florida Stop Lawsuit Abuse. While in Tallahassee, John has represented such groups as Florida Taxpayers Union, Cut Property Taxes Now, The Second Amendment Coalition of Florida and The Florida Campaign for Liberty. Besides his work in Tallahassee, John also serves on the Leadership Team of the Liberty Empowerment Institute. John teaches activists training schools, is a frequent guest on radio talk shows and has written numerous articles promoting the cause of individual liberty.

Please invite any students in your family to attend as this would be a great opportunity to have them learn how Florida government REALLY works.

 

Alachua County Commission-“We Can Be Judge, Jury and Executioner”

Well, well, well. It was just a matter of time before one of the Alachua County Commissioners let it be known that the reason the sheriff deputies are not getting a raise this year is because they keep busting people for pot.  Commissioner Hutchinson has made it well known that he has told the Sheriff that deputies need to stop busting people for marijuana offenses. Regardless of how one may feel about legalized marijuana, the deputies have a duty to enforce the laws that are on the books. Don’t like the laws, then change the laws. You cannot tell deputies that their livelihood is dependent on ignoring certain laws that the Commissioner does not like. In most states there are laws against such actions. This is worrisome enough that we hope the Sheriff will pursue legal action against such intimidation.

Now that we have your interest, please click on the link below to view a copy of Tuesday’s County Commission Special meeting.

You can move the cursor to the 2 hour 45 min mark (2:45:00) and catch most of Commissioner Hutchinson’s comments ranging from taking control of the jail and not allowing room for minor drug offenders, informing the TV land viewers that if they get busted to ask for a trial by jury because you will most certainly get off and finally telling officers “Sorry, you didn’t get your raise because you are busting people.”

The whole section lasts about 15 minutes-   http://alachua.granicus.com/MediaPlayer.php?view_id=8&clip_id=2776

My personal views on drugs are irrelevant. Many of our readers know that the war on drugs has not worked.  Just as the war on poverty or the war on most anything has not worked. The WAR has become a business in and of itself. So let’s see what needs to change. There are so many pieces to the puzzle and the biggest piece is personal responsibility. But as the Government continues to take control of 100% of our daily lives the personal responsibility piece becomes smaller and smaller.

We can not have a group of County Commissioners influence the way police officers do their jobs (Protect You) just because they may not like a law. Can anyone say Politicians and Baltimore crime rate?

If you send an email to the address below it will automatically go to each of the five Commissioners. Let them know how you feel!
